The inaugural REKA Interior Exhibition (RiX) was held in conjunction with Part 1 of the 15th annual Home Design and Interior Exhibition (HOMEDEC). RiX is Malaysia’s first curated design showcase of interior design, products and objects, featuring local and international exhibitors representing leading design brands.
As joint curators of RiX, Ooi Boon Seong, vice president of the Malaysian Institute of Interior Designers (MIID) and Lai Siew Hong, council member of MIID, worked to harmonise elements of the exhibition for visitors to fully experience the concepts on display and to inspire the adoption of these ideas for design solutions.
“RiX was conceptualised with the aim of promoting innovative interior design products and industry services, as part of REKA Design Week 2017,” said Ar Chris Yap, MIID president.
“Looking at the bigger picture, we want to recognise excellence in delivery by designers, encourage networking and exchange of knowledge, as well as provide opportunities for exhibitors to showcase their innovativeness and products on a regional level.”
Other concurrent events of the REKA Design Week included REKA International Design Award, the MIID REKA Conference 2017, the REKA Design Week Gala Dinner, and the Asia Pacific Space Designers Association General Assembly (APSDA) 2017.
